Alicia Keys Moonlight Sonata [Kobe Bryant’s Memorial Performance] Mp4 Video
Alicia Keys joined the likes of Beyonce and Christina Aguilera in giving musical tribute to the late great Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna at their Los Angeles memorial today.
The star’s involvement was notable two-fold.
First, because she was tasked with holding the GRAMMYs together as host just moments after news of Bryant’s tragic death broke at the Staples Center – the very arena today’s event took place. And where Bryant played as an LA Laker for the lion-share of his career.
But also because of the very personal connection the song she played – Beethoven‘s ‘Moonlight Sonata’ – had to the family.
During a eulogy by his best friend given earlier at the event, it was revealed that the NBA legend learnt the famed piece for his wife Vanessa Bryant, who he was missing so dearly at the time.
